of them i'm sure used to see round trip with the open desert entertainments. a little min of exercise to get in better shape. and cuisine would only. do. something to remove our summer sales on our chief. buy here watching our let's take a recap of the headlines this hour syrian rebels declare civilian airports are the latest target and one that international flies shouldn't stray anyway near the country's two largest cities. to push for a no fly zone over syria sends activism. rallying in
a small way as germany both for and against assad's regime. actions are speak louder than words in israel as the country launches a massive war propaganda campaign along with emergency drills. sponsored getting attention for all the wrong reasons at the london paralympics and among disability activists as a firm which they say humiliate them is the key back up again. next time we talk to foreign affairs expert and german left wing politician ian fanaa ten new about the us an agenda in syria. as one of the world's major economic and political powerhouses germany has a lot of influence which it can exert over global situations not to talk with me a little bit more about what germany is doing all my global stage right now i'm joined by. foreign policy spokesperson for the left body here in germany thanks
very much for speaking to me. syria is of course the major flashpoint in the world right now what's germany's view on the situation moment. i would love to know i know what my position is in syria and i think i'm the only side i can take that those people are still peacefully demonstrating for the right for the democratic and human rights. but the german government officially they don't take sides something sure of the. human rights violator of repression within the country fair enough but officially them not taking any other sides with the rebel to whatever but informally and to see it from their involvement you know with a spy ship on the ground there. and they invite syrian petitions for the time thereafter and train them here so officially they seem to take sides but it's unclear to me who they are now you mentioned the training of politicians for
a syria without assad how would those people chosen i know i do your i mean this is by it's not the government think tank but it's the think tank that's close to the government we have here in germany so somebody selected people and i don't know on the basis of which criteria have no clue i mean we now have been invited forefront of discussion. i mean how can you train some people and others not to mean we left party to link in germany we have contacts left politicians some people in syria i would know what i would pick but obviously these are different people so if these people being brought here to germany because germany sees them as being beneficial for the country in the future it sure obviously i mean there's sort of an idea this government has which is not out in the public space i don't know about it but obviously they have an idea who they want to govern the country with that this is ethnically based religiously based politically based no clue
i can figure i can imagine i would think that they would look for people who are not too close to the muslim brothers so to islam and. for wave from from us that is possible maybe not too critical about turkey but i don't know so is germany setting itself up as the best place to to train politicians for the post saddam era that's what they are doing i mean obviously they are inviting people here and they call it training for the situation there after. so yes they are training people for government positions they want to have the relationship with the german government and eventually the muslim brotherhood there are another country where they have huge influence of course in egypt how do you view the situation in that country after their revolution and their transition into a new egypt was very difficult situation for
a long time i was afraid that the army would take over. and now as of today it looks better so that they are losing some of the power of the military to the elected president if this situation continues. hopefully to a future for the situation within egypt what this means for the whole region i mean we have to clash at the border to also really have no idea i think it's very volatile right now for israel for libya syria. and especially then all the threats from israel against iran so it's too early to say that the revolution in egypt is one is over everything is peaceful and happy happy but it looks better today than four weeks ago well to move to libya now what's the situation there in your opinion how does a country like libya want to rebuild itself one of the after months very few people talk about is that many of those who fought in libya now went to the area and are
now fighting in mali for example were we have no sort of a civil war going on or some really extreme muslim took over the north a part of mali many of those fought before that and work with weapons everything would train. in libya so we see sort of the fallout of this war in the neighboring countries is there a chance that the type of situation we see right now in libya that could be repeated in syria as of today the situation for me in syria looks much worse than in libya because i mean the whole environment you know with the middle east conflict lebanon is one problem the other problem is that right now there seems to be so many other countries who have their own interests within syria supporting one side or the other turkey with a kurdish problem so they are supporting the movement just to prevent the kurds within syria to have their own you know autonomy then you have the gulf states supporting the rebels you have the cia on the ground you have german spy ships on
the ground i mean this seems to be the whole world have their interest now with one group or the other syria and that looks to me like a recent piece for a long civil war within syria now we talk about contagion when we're talking about the eurozone crisis is the risk of a war contagion in the wider middle east area if the situation in syria continues contagion is the very risk why the west right now is hesitant to interview because they know if you go into a country like syria you have no control of what's going to happen in the neighboring countries with in the center of attention and levanon so that's why right now the west does not want to intervene because the one of the spillover. but is this not the perfect opportunity to work with iran if i would just look at syria i would think. that that's now the time to get in contact with iran but if you look at the current news. is now threatening more and more in conflict with iran
traveling to attack the nuclear sites within iran with the threat growing by the day and i'm still not confident that these were really keeping at bay until november. it's very difficult for me to think about getting in contact with iran but at the same time there's dismantles military attack on iran interior and might . seem to back off the talks that started so hopefully in moscow for example earlier this year so. the problem is that we're not having syria as a problem alone we're not having peace very iran is a problem in a row now we have turkey because conflict is escalating everything at the same time so where do you see the future of this argument between israel and iran if tel aviv would be rational. i would be happy and think nothing's going to happen because i think military attack on iran could be nearly suicidal for israel.
considering that with all the change in egypt in the neighboring countries the tech like this you don't know how the region would react and if netanyahu be rational i would be happy and safe and think no they won't dare to unfortunately i'm not sure that that and you know is that rational i mean he's increasing and he's really increasing his tanks israel attacks. and i'm afraid his calculation might be before the us elections i can attack iraq a bomb has to back me after the election he might not want to back so the gives us really really bad chance that the netanyahu might attack in october as soon as october starts with an attack and the question is how an attack from. tools for a nuclear science in iran how will that develop. i'm not sure it will develop in an all out war but i mean tanks on israel will happen then you don't know how to react
with a street of formals whether they will close it or not that would definitely start an all out war in terms of germany's role what job is that germany to do germany could really change a lot in that region it was to germany some nine years ago to to mediate in the conflict on the program it was germany who moved to three plus three talks the beginning in two thousand and three when i'm talking to passengers in the region or when i went to a couple of months ago i mean everybody thinks the german should play better the stronger role unfortunately this government just place. the us courts so whatever the u.s. does they follow it and they don't have any initiative from their own what kind of initiative would you like to see the first thing they could easily do is deescalate the conflict with iran i mean they could really go three four five steps towards to around and say ok. now we believe that you stopped the military nuclear program in
two thousand and three so that we're lifting the sanctions and we are engaging in human rights talk and economic talks and this and that this gently just lifts they sanctions is that not purely a symbolic act you know it would be much more than symbolic because the u.n. sanctions are rather small and then the e.u. sanctions much much bigger i mean that's the oil embargo that's very big in germany was sort of passed behind the on the border they could easily have said in a ok we postpone it for another six months postponement the lifting there would have been a very strong signal to tough tough they could have started negotiating. but chile did move on it i mean i really fortunate with my own government and said what's the problem with with a moratorium for three months for six months and it wouldn't go for that because they just follow the u.s. line here they don't have their own policy that's really bad at i think the other thing is weapons i mean german exports third biggest in the world after russia on
the u.s. . they should stop selling weapons in the region and that involves saudi arabia as well as israel as well as other countries and they are still sending every kind of weapon to that region what would you like to see from the german government's foreign policy right now i mean if they would do nothing at all i would be happier than what they are doing today i mean officially they're not doing much but then we suddenly can read the newspapers that they sent a spy ship you know that they are monitoring everything that they are helping the rebel to get the assad regime they are taking sides in a military conflict and that's exactly wrong i mean better would be if you don't do the right thing do nothing. thank you very much bush speaking your work a. wealthy

wall championship comes to russia first time in qualifying the overall leading pair of michael barr tells the grown up troubles with their b.m.w. they will start the qualifying race on the back of the grid. the other end of my current job was cut in pay and the quake was going to be on top. way and the moscow raceway was also the venue last weekend for the first ever russian stage of the well superbike championship and this was a net small thanks to russian entrepreneur icon they acknowledge i think a tough reports. when you talk about more sport you think of formula one how is it speed speak taking all the taking and dangerous maneuvers you are up to then you killed for the super bowl.
finally russia had a chance to taste some high oakton too will actually when the superbike world championship game to moscow for the very first time oh no the young snitch motor sport team alexander was the driving force in bringing the sport to the country the russian entrepreneur ascending into ten year deal to host the event at the mosco raceway but i see what sport people point out is that your i'm always asked why i did that is more sport that particular in russia superbike is twenty five years old broadcast worldwide with half a billion viewers there are lots of fans in russia and we will increase that number that's a huge business project and of course we expect to make a profit. himself wasn't a motorcycle fan it was his wife ninety years then who was into the sport and inspired her husband to establish a team somewhat surprisingly there were only female writers in the squad at the beginning but soon held be turned into a business isn't what it is he's not quite sure how it happened our my husband
watched me racing step by step he got into it and got addicted grinning superbike to russia became his girl this was simular as i can see it all started with my family and became a massive project one of our former female drivers is now the team sports director my wife is now more into airplane racing but i don't. have any plans to hold such events yet the dean has three drinks forming into an outfit ready to compete with the superbike giant and they have their side set high in the saddle this quarter aiming not just to take part in the world championship but also to climb up on the podium on a regular basis but i got that when i got into the team into until eleven when we competed in the italian championship and move very close to taking the title this is our first season in superbike we've had lots of ups and downs but we're working hard to improve our performance. twenty five year old who on earth is competing in
the second race supersport get a break and he has already finished on the podium twice in his debut season one of those placing spain on his home circuit at the weekend. thank you everyone it was a really good race one of the best this season i would like to thank my team and fans for support it was amazing. with the emergence of the yahoo team in superbike and lois's continued presence in formula one the stage is set for russia to now be counted the way on the mourners board see and finally get to grips with the need for speed on sunday forty. and final of the first weekend in september the russian capital celebrates moscow day with fun and entertainment across the city however this year muscovites had the chance to witness a slightly more extreme show as michael catching fire at strong. at this year's moscow day celebrations muscovites and the city's guests were cheated to an
impromptu performance by russia's top just drivers fans were allowed to get up close and personal as the drivers convened in moscow's famous luzhniki sports complex to show off their skills. we're very happy if it were being invited to such events because it brings our sport to the masses many don't know what drifting is and often associated with illegal activities but there's nothing like this is fast beautiful and a lot of. for many of us a nation of ripping up ask old with a total powered speed machine is consigned to video games we're hitting restarts can become a habit switch to reality and one realizes the adrenaline and danger that comes with maneuvering between concrete blocks at high speeds it's also a trip down memory lane for the drive is being able to burn rubber on what is otherwise just a simple car park. what with most if not all just competitions held in large arenas nowadays. it's great to be back in such
a course because now we compete very wise aerials without concrete walls or the like and also spectators are often far removed from the action but i'm all for more old school venues where spectators can literally feel the adrenaline rushing up it's also a mini preparation for the upcoming russian just final which will be held on the eight september right here in moscow so even though some drivers may well be keeping an eye on that event today it was all about showboating and having fun michael jenkins. and that's all the sports there is.
